  • Chief Justice Calls for Homelessness Study

    In her State of the Judiciary address this week, California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye described how the judicial branch remains accountable, champions the needs of the people, her plan to appoint a workgroup to study homelessness and why the justice of today is important.
